How it’s different than server side “tool kit” of “developer kit” applications:

Server/client side vs. Hosted

Every toolkit product is a derivative of the application provider’s desktop solution. The toolkit is basically the guts of the solution without the user interface, there’s a benefit when performance is an issue because there’s less overhead for the server to load. Understanding the derivative nature of “toolkit” products may make you wonder why the desktop applications they’re based from are a fraction of the cost when they’re essentially the same thing. Server-side application APIs also have the same trappings of their desktop cousins; requiring constant updates, maintenance, extra servers and rack space. TEC is and always has been an API first company, in fact, our other solutions like MailPreparer are built on top of the API.

Software application vendors

The business case is clear and the demand is increasing, incorporating address hygiene and presort services in your MIS, W2P, VPD or CRM is a matter of time. However, doing so presents a myriad of challenges and takes a subject matter expert to get right. You can rely on TEC to ensure success; no other vendor has our experience to embed these services into your existing platform(s).

We help with:

  • Defining the scope of the project and Proof of Concept (PoC) – don’t get bogged down with the USPS requirements or discover in your PoC that server side “tool kit” applications can’t be provisioned over multiply entities without a team of integrators. Hint: Server/client side software kills adoption
  • Project manager – Integration is a team sport and we want our partners to win. Our subject matter experts take the mystery out of USPS compliance and other data related issues and understand the specific needs of the data focused industries. Hint: You NEED a mailing Sherpa!
  • Sand Box – Free setup and use of our test environment without obligation
    The industries only N+1 API – Success with you integration hinges on several factors but none bigger than provisioning and subsequent consumption. TEC {WS} API has the ability to seamlessly add users without vendor/client interaction, simply turn the services on with a subscription or pay-as-you-go. Hint: This is where most server/client side PoCs fail.
  • Flexible subscription pricing – You help provision the services through integration and we make sure they’re consumed with our fair subscription and pay-as-you-go pricing. Hint: The high cost of server/client API’s creates resentment from the buyer
